★★★★★ Enchanting book for kids, September 14, 2011
The vivid colors and captivating pictures of "A Christmas Wish" make it an instant family classic. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, the underlying message is universal.
The beautifully drawn characters are immediately lovable and the descriptive and charming story is one that your child will want to read again and again. "A Christmas Wish" uses rhyming to make the story more fun and memorable for a child, which is quite reminiscent of the Dr. Seuss classics. This incredible story includes descriptions such as,
"Suddenly the sled dropped like a tone, the wind howled,
Raging by as they plunged to the ground.
A thousand feet they fell,
They feel faster and farther, spellbound."
These beautifully written words make it is easy to understand why children find this book enchanting. avalynn parnass --AMAZON USA Enchanting book for kids, September 14, 2011 http://www.amazon.com/Bilbos-Adventures-Christmas-Wish-1/dp/098293842X/ref=dp_return_2?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books
